Our intellect becomes our enemy when it ignores Divine intelligence and dissuades us from listening to God’s voice in our heart. It’s a constant challenge to forsake our self-perceived “intelligence” in favor of humbling our heart and seeking God’s intellect. We’d rather not take the time and effort to get our heart in line with His because we think it means giving up what will make us most joyful or, perhaps because it doesn’t make sense to us. However, rejecting God’s intelligence in favor of our own is like living in the driest desert and trading an aquifer for a single drop of water! When we seek God, our pipeline is to a freshwater ocean of His intelligence.

The Bible says: “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.” (Isaiah‬ ‭55:6-8‬) How intelligent is God? The Book of Romans says: “Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! ‘For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?’” (Romans‬ ‭11:33-34) God is the ONLY–eternal, self-existing, truly self-sustaining and self-taught one. We are not!

So, how do we discover God’s Divine truth? Well–we must discover God! We must seek Him and forsake our own ways. We cannot be in His presence unless we forsake the sins that separate OUR HEART from Him. Our mind often justifies sin–especially sins like white lies, worry, fear, pride, etc., and we seek to solve problems on our own instead of humbling ourselves before God. If we wish to be led by God’s divine intelligence, then we must seek Him before everything–even ourselves! Make today the genesis for living in the discovery of Divine truth. Humbly seek Him, and then–watch His wisdom work in unimaginable ways! God is brilliant!
